TURBINE ART FAIR 2017

13 – 16.07.2107

BOOTH # GH14 | TURBINE ART FAIR

The Turbine Art Fair has established itself as a significant event on the SA Arts Calendar, presenting rare and crucial opportunities to Collectors and Artists alike. This Fair has won us over through its fantastic electric atmosphere, its high level of organization, and most notably in remaining absolutely committed to its intention to promote emerging talent and to nurture a new collectors base, ideas which resonate greatly with the core philosophy of our gallery.

Since its inception in 2008, Salon Ninety One has served as a platform for both emerging and established South African artists of all disciplines to gain exposure through sharing their creativity and vision. The Artists exhibiting with Salon Ninety One have all excelled in their respective fields, with their names quickly gaining recognition across South Africa and abroad. This year we are proud to be representing Andrew Sutherland, Black Koki, Cathy Layzell, Heidi Fourie, Jordan Sweke, Kirsten Beets, Kirsten Sims, Linsey Levendall, Paul Senyol and Zarah Cassim. These Artists embody the gallery’s signature style and reflect the astounding growth and promise of local talent.

Salon Ninety One will be exhibiting at the Turbine Art Fair, for the fourth consecutive year bringing accessible, affordable contemporary art from Cape Town to both seasoned collectors and first-time buyers in Johannesburg. Visit us at Booth GH14, Turbine Hall from the 13th to the 16th of July 2017. Please call 021-424-6930 for further information.

INHABITANT

28.09 – 22.10.2016

An exhibition of paintings by Paul Senyol.

To inhabit a space implies a type of ownership by presence. City bylaws and property deeds describe space in one way but that map frays at its intersection with the human occupation of place. Daily movements define and embrace space, carving it with the simultaneous care and ruthlessness of a sculptor.

The modernist trend is to present information in an ordered, chronological way – where meaning is imparted, not found. The shift to an artistic and narrative practice around providing immersive situations where viewers discover meaning for themselves has emerged as a counterpoint to that reportage trend. In Senyol’s work, this idea of immersive, experiential space provides a process of critical interrogation with the notion of inhabitation that is neither city bylaw nor street dweller, but somewhere between the two – a place where art is the patina of a lived experience.

The patina of Senyol’s experience of space is one characterised by transition. His home and studio in Woodstock is on the fringe of an urban renewal zone, a site characterized by places of collapse and repair. It is a space of binaries, of wealth and poverty, newness and decay, concrete and park verge. Senyol recognises that between these binaries resides a new creation altogether. This ‘fringe’ between states is his artistic Eden.

Works for inhabitant are more loosely based on Senyol’s daily sketches than in previous exhibitions. He has foregrounded his role as translator in this series, working across multiple canvases simultaneously in a process of experiential storytelling. He has also expanded beyond the canvas into the gallery space itself, evolving that experiential story telling onto textured gallery walls and the inclusion of small sculptures or urban cairns – a personal memorialising of the oft overlooked beauty of urban debris.

Senyol received no formal artistic training, but he has been studying art and the mark since his fascination with skateboarding magazines as a teenager in Cape Town. He is inspired by the Mission School Art Movement in San Francisco, the Woostercollective, Marc Gonzalez, Ed Templeton, Barry McGee, punk rock music, the way skateboarding & cycling enables him to access the city and books in the City Library. Graphics, album covers, magazine layouts and illustrations are an important influence to his aesthetic as is the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Henri Matisse and Joan Miró, respectively. His works celebrate the abstract moments of the image: formal qualities of line, form and hue from the basis of his compositions that evolve through the process of painting. Senyol began exhibiting “free art” on street corners in the early 2000s and this enabled him to connect directly with the street and its unexpected audiences. He may now exhibit almost exclusively within the gallery space, but this shift remains, for him, just another space to engage the viewer in a new way.

PAPER IS YOU III

29.04 – 21.5.2016

Featured Artists:
Gabrielle Raaff
Paul Senyol
Andrew Sutherland
Berry Meyer
Kirsten Beets
Elsabé Milandri

ABOUT:
Paper Is You III is an exclusively paper-based exhibition, which focuses on the diversity and richness of paper as artistic medium. This is the third instalment in a range of exhibitions by the same name which have been hosted by Salon91 since 2011, titled after a poem written by artists Wessel Snyman and Katrine Claassens (who have both exhibited at the gallery). All too often art is is only considered ‘Art’ when it is an oil on canvas piece. Paper Is You challenges this preconception and celebrates the magic of paper-based artwork in all its forms and applications, as well as the incredible ways in which this carefully selected group of artists engage with this age-old medium, working both within and against the confines of the medium. There will be individual works by all of the participating artists on view, as well as collaborative artworks.

THIS IS THE PLACE

14 – 31.10.2015

A group exhibition by Andrzej Urbanski , Wesley van Eeden, Andrew Sutherland, Jade Klara, Dani Loureiro and Paul Senyol.

This group exhibition by six highly-skilled contemporary artists centred around the act and process of collaboration across diverse modes of practice. The exhibition features 4 local artists from Cape Town, including Paul Senyol, Dani Loureiro, Jade Klara, and Andrew Sutherland, as well as Durban-based artist Wesley van Eeden, and Andrzej Urbanski, a Polish-German artist who is also based in Cape Town and part of the Salon Ninety One stable. The artists come together under the theme to explore ideas around Collaboration, Place, and Presence. Viewers can expect to see works by the individual artists in their signature styles as well as exciting once-off collaborative projects ranging from painterly portraits, abstract works, layered graphic pieces, unusually shaped canvases, typography, works on paper, works on board, works on canvas, as well as works which break free from the traditional confines of image-making all with a unique local feel.

POLYNESIA

20.05 – 20.06.15

Following in the footsteps of two great masters Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin, this two-person exhibition of recent paintings by Paul Senyol & Cathy Layzell, explores the islands of Polynesia as its central theme. Layzell has worked predominantly in oil on canvas, while Senyol has chosen mixed media on board for this show. The artists have also created two large-scale collaborative paintings towards the exhibition. Polynesia represents a collection of abstract paintings, which depict the diversity of the central & southern pacific through unexpected perspectives, hues & brushstrokes. The paintings leave the viewer with an intense awareness of the power & unpredictability of nature and this exotic paradise.

Over 40 galleries and 130 artists will be exhibiting work from the full spectrum of media. Wanted Business Day Magazine will be presenting an installation of new video works, curated by Gary Cotterell, featuring some of SA’s most exciting contemporary artists namely; Mikhael Subotzky, Haroon Gunn-Salie, Barend de Wet, Khanyisile Mgongwe, Kudzanai Chiurai and Cameron Platter. Cape Town curator and critic, Andrew Lamprecht will be curating the featured artist space. Land and environmental artist Strijdom Van Der Merwe has been commissioned to make a site-specific work for the fair and the list goes on.

A VACANT PASSAGE

21.09 – 12.10.2013

a-vacant-passage_evite1_web

 

Two Person Exhibition – Andrzej Urbanski & Paul Senyol.

There is a beautiful synergy that exists between Paul Senyol & Andrzej Urbanski’s paintings. A VACANT PASSAGE is the story of two artists traveling and leaving behind remnants and legacies, told and expressed through powerful & uniquely abstracted artworks. Andrzej Urbanski [Pol/Ger] and Paul Senyol [Zar] first met during Urbanski’s residency in Cape Town in June of 2012. Soon they began to discover the many similarities, which exist across their individual artistic practices and approaches, even though the execution of their work differs radically.

 A VACANT PASSAGE presents an all-new body of work from Urbanski and Senyol respectively, as well as some collaborative pieces, all of which relate to their history and the common happenings of the years when both artists’ families experienced the repercussions of The Second World War. The works on exhibition reference a time and a place, which no longer exist. Both artists having experienced this particular location in a different context, come together to seek out and construct a narrative from the puzzle pieces of a past, which neither has any actual recollection of, other than a shoebox filled with photos, newspaper clippings, essays as well as stories handed down from generation to generation. To the artists, Germany is a vacant place, Poland is a vacant place, and some day, South Africa too might become a vacant place.

While the subject matter may seem very specific, the works carry a truly universal message. The exhibition will feature a unique AUGMENTED REALITY aspect, which will further enhance the level of accessibility, as well as the viewer’s experience of the exhibition by means of user-friendly computer software & technologies. Visitors will be able to download the software to devices such as Smartphones & Ipads to enjoy an enhanced experience, which will offer further insight into the artists, their stories and the works on show. The exhibition flyer, the shopfront and the artworks will be layered with interactive digital content. Viewers can expect to see medium to large-scale paintings varying from monochrome black and white, to beautiful hues of colour on paper and on canvas, as well as a number of collaborative works.

ANDRZEJ URBANSKI | ARTISTS PROFILE

Andrzej Urbanski (Born 1983) is a German visual artist of Polish ancestry, currently residing in Cape Town. Andrzej’s early artistic background has developed and evolved over the course of 16 years spent painting, creating sculptures, being involved in several art projects, exhibitions and teaching positions around the globe. The artist holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts, attained during 2012 from the EAE (European Art Ensemble) at the ECAL (University of Art & Design) in Lausanne, Switzerland and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design/Graphic Design from BTK-FH in Berlin since 2010. In June of 2012 Andrzej completed a residency at /A WORD OF ART as a part of his studies. The mandate for the EAE program states that students must engage in dialogue with foreign scholars and institutions, holding at its core the need for interpersonal connection and foreign travel to gather experience and exchange ideas between art professionals, educators, and students. Aside from his finished thesis research, Andrzej is interested in exploring the process of creating work in different social environments around the globe, drawing influence and inspiration from architecture, landscape, photography, design elements and media/advertising & of course from the other artists he encounters on his journey. His main artistic focus is on human social behaviour and learned or innate reactions to varying shapes and colours.

PAUL SENYOL | ARTISTS PROFILE

Paul Senyol was born on the 25th of October 1980 in Cape Town, South Africa. Paul has been drawing and painting since his early high school years, however never pursuing any form of artistic or graphic training. At age sixteen, he discovered the freedom of skateboarding and punk rock music in the beautiful suburb of Welgemoed, where he grew up. This naturally became a key influence in his early drawings, sketches and paintings, while skateboard graphics, album covers, magazine layouts and illustrations played a role in developing his aesthetic eye. Around the same time, he also became exposed to the creativity of graffiti and street artists such as Marc Gonzales, Ed Templeton, and Barry McGee – all of this forming part of his early art education. A few years later Paul was introduced to and moved by the creative thought and artistic genius of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Cy Twombly respectively. Senyol’s lack of formal training and schooling has given him the freedom to break away from traditional notions of painting, to explore genres and styles, and to meld mediums, allowing him a creative freedom that flows so evidently through his work. Senyol’s art lingers gracefully and intentionally between beauty and honesty and brings a surreal, yet abstract world into being. His current work focuses heavily on narrative, shape, line, form, composition, colour & texture. Each faint line, bold brushstroke and shape is carefully composed to breathe life into its environment, reflecting something of light, serenity, experience and thought. His finished work seeks to engage the viewer through translating his own experiences to canvas, allowing an open discussion and translation of his work. Senyol has exhibited extensively throughout South Africa and abroad. This year Paul has been nominated as a finalist to the Absa Atelier Competition 2013. He currently works from a studio in Woodstock, Cape Town.

oneinamillionlogo2

 

Group Show – Various Media – Emerging Artists – Salon91

Artists have been challenged by the gallery to create anew / submit a masterpiece that they believe to be a truly once-off original, successful, archetypal example of their practice, which answers to the theme and title phrase ‘One in a Million’. Each artist will only submit one piece. The artists have really let their imaginations run wild with interpretations ranging from ideas around authenticity, rarity, preciousness, love, the night sky, fleeting moments, intricacy, endangered species, statistics & formulas, to the use of sparkly materials / precious metals within their work. Viewers will be presented with what could essentially be a one-in-a-million opportunity to collect a seminal work by an emerging artist.

The exhibition will open on the 26th of June at 18h30.
‘One in a Million’ will feature one work per artist.
Expect to see sculpture, painting, drawing, typography, digitally created works & more …Not to be missed!

GATHER

12 – 25.10.2012

A two-man ‘live art’ show by Paul Senyol & Augustine Kofie

Proudly presented by The Lovell Gallery in association with Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection

Venue: The Lovell Gallery, Woodstock
139 Albert Road, Woodstock, Cape Town

Co-curated by Tamzin Lovell Miller, Brendon van Kraayenbug & Monique du Preez

 

This October The Lovell Gallery & Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection join forces to present GATHER an exhibition by visual artists Augustine Kofie & Paul Senyol, whose works grace the streets and galleries of LA and Cape Town, respectively. GATHER will include works by the individual artists in their signature styles, collaborative works by Senyol & Kofie, as well as a true pièce de résistance, a historic racing Porsche 911, which will be transformed into an object of art inside the gallery as part of this exhibition.

Augustine Kofie (born 1973) is a self-taught artist living and working in Los Angeles.  He has exhibited extensively worldwide with seminal shows in New York, California, Japan, The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. The artist has been featured in Juxtapoz, The Huffington Post, LA Weekly, Project Room and Studio Voice. Kofie is internationally renowned for his awe-inspiring technical skills, employed to create his unique abstract compositions, characterized by simple geometric shapes, exact lines & smooth colour – complex yet elegant and in a league of their own.

Paul Senyol (born 1980) has been drawing and painting since his early high school years, however never pursuing any form of artistic training. Graffiti and street artists such as Marc Gonzales, Ed Templeton, and Barry McGee have all been major influences in his work, and in later years, the artistic genius of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Cy Twombly. The absence of formal training has given the artist the freedom to break away from traditional notions of painting, to explore a variety of genres and styles, and to meld mediums, allowing him a creative freedom that flows so evidently through his works. Senyol’s art lingers gracefully and intentionally between beauty and honesty and brings a surreal, yet abstract world into being. Geometry, line, shape, composition, typography, abstraction and colour form the key elements in his work. Senyol has exhibited extensively throughout South Africa and has shown in a number of exhibitions in Europe. He currently works from a studio in Woodstock, Cape Town, and is represented by Salon91 Contemporary Art Collection.

Kofie and Senyol have both succeeded in developing their own unique abstract- & street- inspired artistic identities without any formal training. Process, balance, geometry, layering and typography are common elements, which link these artists’ works together. The pairing of Kofie and Senyol’s practice in GATHER results in a richly diverse visual dialogue and outcome, coexisting beautifully and harmoniously within the gallery space. GATHER further invites the viewer to be witness to the art-making process of two original contemporary street- and fine-artists in their own right. A world-class exhibition not to be missed!
